Audiolab launches flagship 9000 series integrated amplifier and CD transport

Written by admin

Audiolab has unveiled the first two products in its new flagship 9000 Series – a truly high-end duo that comprises the 9000A integrated amplifier and 9000CDT CD transport.

The Cambridge-based firm reckons the 9000A integrated amplifier is ‘the best it has ever built’. It carries a moving magnet phono stage, doubles up as a pure preamp or pure power amplifier, and boasts 2×100 watts at 8 ohms (2×160 watts at 4 ohms).

Other features include a sleek 4.3-inch IPS LCD display, rotary dials and a 32-bit ESS 9038PRO DAC chip. Those wishing to stream high-quality music wirelessly from mobile devices will be pleased to note that the 9000A’s Bluetooth connectivity includes support for aptX HD and LDAC, as well as aptX Low Latency, regular aptX, AAC and SBC. Nice.

There’s no built-in network streaming but Audiolab is quick to point out that it is developing a separate, dedicated audio streamer for the 9000 Series – that’s set to arrive in early 2023.
